Synopsis

Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais adapt journalist Neil McCormick's autobiography for the big screen with this Irish rock 'n' roll comedy. Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan star as Neil and Ivan McCormick, two brothers who form a band in Dublin in the late 1970s with the dream of becoming internationally famous rock stars. Unfortunately, they are quickly overshadowed by their schoolfriend Bono, who has started a band of his own: U2. The McCormick brothers must now stand helplessly on the sidelines of greatness as they watch their old rival soar into the musical stratosphere. Krysten Ritter, Pete Postlethwaite and Marty McCann co-star.
